NTZR - Melvin Bayou Bridge
Posted January 24, 2016, by Richard Spencer (richard [at] natchezrailway [dot] com)

Correct subject should be NTZR-Saint Catherine Creek bridge, not Melvin Bayou.

Bridge consists of three 100 foot riveted truss spans built in 1906 with a 74 foot ballast deck approach on the west end. This is Natchez Railway bridge 144.6. This bridge should not be confused with bridge 151.25 over the same creek.
